The Kyū Shiba Rikyū Garden is a metropolitan park located in Kaigan, Minato, and is an atmospheric spot where you can see cherry blossoms against the backdrop of monorails and other urban structures, as the garden is located in the city.

The garden was created using many famous stones, and you can feel the weight of history in the calculated beauty of the cherry blossoms when they are incorporated into the heroic masonry.

Although there are only about 40 cherry trees in the garden, it is a place to enjoy the cherry blossoms in the garden slowly and deeply.

Although the cherry trees may be suitable for adults, even children may forget the hustle and bustle of the city and casually feel that Japanese culture and Edo culture are amazing. It is a place where anyone can feel that way.

The Odaiba area is also nearby, so you can feel the passage of time through culture.
